If writing letters doesn’t come naturally and you need some good advice and sample letters to get you started, then you can’t go wrong with the short but sweet “How To Write Letters For All Occasions” by Dear Abby, the syndicated advice columnist.
The 28 page booklet talks you through salutations and how to address dignitaries as well as how to write the closing of your letter and sign it.
Do you need to write a thank you for a birthday gift? There are three examples to peruse. Other types of gift giving (baby, wedding, showers, etc.) also have samples to jumpstart your correspondence.
Letters of congratulations, condolences, get well and invitations are covered as well as how to write a resume or business letter.
For such a small booklet, it’s very thorough and easy to obtain. You simply send $7.00 in check or money order (shipping and handling are included in the price) along with your name and address to:

After reading this booklet, you’ll no longer have an excuse for not sending that long overdue thank you to Aunt Edna for her delicious homemade fruitcake.
